Festool green
« on: April 14, 2016, 08:25 PM »
I'm making a systainer port using sys-az-pull-out drawers. I want to have some green included when it's done. Does anyone know a green color that could be used?

Thanks Mark

Not from personal experience, just did a quick FOG search, and came up with these suggestions from various topics:

Sherwin Williams Outrageous Green is also a great match.

Benjamin Moore Sweet Pea.

I believe the official color is RAL 6018.

But if you have a Systainer, you can always just take the latch in and have it computer-matched.

Take a sample piece of the color you want to match to Sherwin-Williams. They'll scan it and assign a paint color to it. Couldn't be easier.

It's even easier to go to the paint and get a color they already have.  Especially since several members have already gone to the trouble to find a perfect, or near perfect color match.  So it could be easier... [tongue]

Thanks everyone for your replies. I will find something close. 
On a different note, I have since broke one of the two hinges on a Tanos Sys-Cart® Base sold by Lee Valley.  Does anyone know of a fix or how I can get a new latch?
